Classic Beach House with Elegant Interiors

We see so many beautiful homes around here and have you wondered who lives in these impeccably designed homes? I had many homeowners emailing me, feeling happy to see their homes featured on Home Bunch and so many of them continue to keep in touch. I have to say that I love that!

It’s no different with this extraordinary classic beach house in the Hamptons. I am extremely happy to share with you this beautiful home, owned and designed by one of my favorite interior designers, Iris Dankner. Like you will see, this home exudes elegant and beauty.

Trying to escape from the busy life in Manhattan, Iris decided to build this classic, chic shingled home where she can spend every summer with her family in Southampton, New York. The house was built by Hampton’s top builder, Joe Farrell, and designed to welcome in the ocean’s breeze and to allow the interior designer to create her beach-inspired dream home.

Take a look and tell me, wouldn’t you also love to spend your entire summer in this house?

Finding The Perfect Colors

 When starting the design process for her family’s summer home, the first step was selecting a color palette. “The blue, white and brown gave me a fresh beach feeling,” she says. “I felt it was important that the rooms on the first level all work together by keeping the same color palette but treating each room differently.”

 Designing It on Your Own

This is what Iris says about designing her own home: “The bonus of designing my own house is that I was able to make changes so that it felt like my own,” she says. “You can experiment and try things that you might not feel comfortable doing with a client.”

 Living Room

Living Room Decorating Ideas. Fabulous living room decorating ideas. I love the classic, coastal feel of this living room. #LivingRoom. #LivingRoomDecor #LivingRoomDesign

The living room works more like a family room, where the family spend most of their time, but since it opens to the kitchen, the designer wanted the room to feel pretty and cozy. Coffered ceilings give the space traditional appeal.

 The island was thoughtfully designed to face the outdoors for a pleasant view while cooking. “I wanted a large island and a large table that could seat 12 for breakfast,” she says. “At a beach house we always have lots of guests sleeping over — that means lots of meals.”

The tables on each side of the room are often used as drink stations when the couple entertains; the buffet also holds all of their china.

“Living in New York City and also designing many apartments in New York City, I am more familiar with smaller spaces,” Dankner says. “The scale in an apartment is much different than in a large home.” To fill the master bedroom, the designer added a seating area in front of the fireplace.

When building the house, Dankner made sure to include an outside space that felt like an extension of the interior. She spends a lot of her time on the covered porch, which she furnished with a ceiling fan and curtains. “The covered porch is everyone’s favorite, because I created an indoor space outside,” she says. “It’s comfortable and a wonderful space to entertain.”

It’s so wonderful to have you guys back here… I had so much fun preparing this post. You know how much I love shingled coastal homes! They’re my favorite! :-)

So, did you have a good weekend? It’s being incredibly warm here and, since we live on the “unpredictable” East Coast, we have to enjoy when the skies are clear and the sun is shining!

Today, we played outside with the kids and after that we went try a new Japanese restaurant in town. I love, love, love Japanese food, not to mention the culture and people. It was wonderful there, we had a good time and I could relax and feel happy.

I have to say that I am learning many things with my grandmother’s passing, but the most important is to show how much I love and appreciate my family. It’s never enough nor too late to embrace every minute we spend with our loved ones. I am less grumpy, worried and stressed and I am living with a more “in the moment” attitude. I have been way too stressed about too many things during the last couple of years and now I see that the most important things for me is how I decide to live each day. That’s what will build a better life, not how many hours of sleep I loose for worrying about the future.

Start this week bringing all the love you can carry in your heart and spread it to everyone you love and care. In fact, go a little further… bring this love and this energy to the people that you will meet during this week. Let people feel embraced by you.

with Love,
